Ozark, AL to Pensacola Naval Air Station, FL

Our next stop is the Oak Grove RV Park on Pensacola Naval Air Station (NAS). It is about 200 miles from Ozark, AL and took 4 hours. A very easy drive and our arrival sparked fond memories of past visits to this park. So far this is our favorite place to stay. We're to be here for three weeks and plan to enjoy every minute of it. As you can see in the picture below (we're located at the red arrow) we are very close to the amazingly white-sand beach which is common to the Gulf Coast.  An added benefit is the O'Doodle Brothers are allowed off leash on the beach .  They love this place.

One of the main attractions of Pensacola is the Naval Aviation Museum on the NAS.  It is located close to the RV park and we will visit it several times while here.  This is also the home of the Blue Angels, the Navy's precision flying team.  They practice often and, since we are next to the runway, we get front row seats each time they take to the sky.

The city of Pensacola is steeped in history and has many museums relating to it.  The city and the area is a favorite winter tourist destination so there is a lot going on all the time.  Never a shortage of things to do or places to see.  We've seen a lot during our past visits here, but there are always sights we have not seen.  Always good to be here.
